Hyderabad: Cold wave conditions are likely to prevail at isolated places in northern and western districts of Telangana for the next 24 hours, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted on 21 December. The minimum temperatures will likely stay three to four degrees below normal, it said.
"The weather conditions are indicating that north Easterlies/Northerlies prevail over the state and anticyclonic circulations are moving over central India and its adjoining areas. It is causing the lowering of temperature over Telangana, especially in northern and western parts of Telangana that are likely to have cold wave conditions during the next 24 hours," the IMD said. However, temperatures are likely to fall by three to four degrees Celsius at isolated places in other parts of the districts, it said.
According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS), Ginnedari mandal in Kumuram Bheem district recorded the lowest temperature in the state, 4.3°C, while BHEL in Sangareddy district recorded the lowest temperature in the GHMC area at 10°C. The highest maximum temperature of 35°C was recorded at Pammi in Khammam.
The TSDPS said minimum temperatures are expected to be in the range of 6 to 12°C on day one and 7 to 12°C on day two and three in most of the districts of the state, while the maximum temperatures are expected to be in the range of 27 to 30°C. Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in the GHMC area will be in the range of 9 to 13°C and the maximum temperatures are expected to be in the range of 27 to 29°C.
